Siblings of Young Children with Special Needs


•  Difficult feelings they might have

•  Finding ways to develop coping skills

•  Acceptance of differences

We will discuss the emotional and social development of the sibling of a special needs child, early warning signs of distress, as well as evidence-based research and interventions to bolster positive outcomes for this population, which is often missed until pathology becomes apparent.
